But how does the pushbutton know, which Lua libs and files to include into the package? I state the C-libs for the linker to create the statically linked executable, so do I also state the required Lua sources in some configuration or is some magic involved?

I'm currently very selfish and it's enough for me and for now to get it running on windows, because that's my daily environment (IUP wouldn't be an option otherwise because AFAIK the golden days of motif are gone) - whether I like it or not. But I'll try to be prepared for the day when the world outside Explorer.exe is discovered :)

Did I miss a point or where can I find it? If it's part of LuaX than it's OK and I'll find it later on - I still can't open the URL.
